Roger,

If you are filling your overflow tank with oil, it's too much. As for a sportsman engine, I'd rather see 8 to 10" of vacuum, than the 12-14 you mentioned. Gots to keep the wrist pins oiled.

You can put your fitting for gauge in the manifold floor, if it's a single plane like a Victor, or a neater ideal is from Chuck Stevens,,,, put in in your mechancial fuel pump block off plate. Chuck makes and sells a nice block off plate that is already drilled and tapped for an AN fitting.

Hope this helps,

Roger,

Just use the search function. Under the "author's name", type in Chuck Stevens and when his screen comes up, then just click on the "pm" and send him a pm.

Hope this helps,
